philosophical meaning

First of all, I hate the way Emma sounds. My voice is such so that it always sounds like I have a cold, so it sounds like Ebba when I say it.

My appreciation of the name comes from the meaning entirely, and what a meaning it is! The best. I truly couldn't have named anyone better in this regard. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, "To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, -- that is genius." I do not take "whole" to mean complete or entire necessarily, but rather as the idea that all of the implements of finding universal truth are *included in the package.* This name alone says what I most want to say every day: that within the individual is humanity, entirety. It's whatever we're dying to say I guess, by definition, our 'latent conviction.' This alone is human.

As popular as this name is (and it is so VERY popular), I have to say that I still really like it! It seems so... idk... Jane Austin-ish to me :) Classy and feminine.

How funny that all these people are named Emma Catherine....I don't know yet if I am having a girl, but if I do I was planning on Emma Catherine. Emma cause I love the name, Catherine because it is my grandmothers name (she turns 100 in Nov.)I love her dearly.. and it is also my middle name. Maybe I'll pick a different 1st name.. :(
